Quad City River Bandits to Hold Supply Drive for Victims of the Davenport Building Collapse

The Quad City River Bandits have announced a supply drive for people who have been displaced by the collapse of a Davenport Apartment building that killed at least three people, and is still impacting the lives of many more than a week later. Bandits owner Dave Heller announced the Supply drive in a press release on Tuesday stating:

As part of the River Bandits’ commitment to the Quad
Cities and the City of Davenport, the team announced it is hosting a
home supplies donation drive for those impacted by the partial
collapse of the apartment building located at 324 Main St. in

In conjunction with the Salvation Army and Planet 93.9, the River
Bandits will accept shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, soap, and other
home essentials at Modern Woodmen Park on Thursday, June 8, 2023. The
community is invited to drop off donations outside the main gates of
Modern Woodmen Park beginning at 5 p.m. prior to Quad Cities game
against the Fort Wayne TinCaps at 6:30 p.m.

As a thank you, all donors will receive a ticket voucher good for a
future regular season River Bandits home game.

“When tragedy strikes our community, the River Bandits family is there
to help those in need,” said River Bandits owner Dave Heller. “Our
hearts go out to everyone who lived or had family or friends living at
324 Main Street. No building should ever have been allowed to
deteriorate to the point where any part of it comes crashing down. But
this community has an unsinkable spirit and a huge heart. We are
making it easy for people to help out their fellow Quad Citizens—and
by donating toiletries and other personal care essentials, they can
make a real difference to people who would definitely appreciate it.”
